If you’ve bought AirAsia’s Unlimited Pass a couple of months ago, the low-cost carrier has announced that they are extending the travel period validity until 30th June 2021. The extension is expected since international travel is still not permitted in Malaysia due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
According to AirAsia’s Facebook post, the new validity date should be reflected under the AirAsia Deals page under the ‘My Purchases’ tab. The updated FAQ states that the booking must be made at least 14 days in advance and the last available booking date is 16 June 2021.
Unlimited Flight Change
For those who have booked their flights on or before 17th of April with a departure date between 23rd March and 30th June are allowed to make unlimited flight change to any date before 31st October 2020 on the same route for unlimited times without any additional costs subject to seat availability. Alternatively, they can request to retain the value of the booking as a credit which can be redeemed within 2 years (730 days) from the issuance date.
AirAsia Unlimited Pass
The AirAsia Unlimited Pass was introduced on 29 February and it was seen as a move to cushion the economic impact of COVID-19 on the travel industry. The pass costs RM499 and it allows you to take unlimited AirAsia X flights to destinations in Australia, Japan, China, Korea, India and also Honolulu via Osaka.
The pass only covers the base fare of the flight and it doesn’t include taxes, airport charges, regulatory fees as well as add-ons such as seat reservation, meals and check-in luggage allowance. Initially, the pass covers a travel period from 2nd March 2020 to 2nd March 2021 and it is now extended by approximately 4 months.
